How much revenue was generated by suppliers of temporary staffing in 2010? We estimate U.S. revenue of $80 billion, representing a 12 percent increase from 2009. After major cuts to contract labor in 2009, companies have ramped up their use of temporary staffing. We project that by 2012, the U.S. temporary market will make up $97.3 billion, near pre-recession levels.
